When we decided to take our Road Trip this summer I was thinking about my then 6 month old baby girl and how to carrier her around even though she needed regular naps and knew that her brothers would want the stroller so she would need to be carried a lot. I wanted something that she could sit up in but also be easily transitioned into sleeping without disturbing her too much. A great solution was Hotslings, I have never had a "sling type" baby carrier and I wasn't sure how I would like it. I had my baby in the Hip Carry position, it was comfortable for me and she loved it. She could see out and it felt natural to me because on my hip is where she travels a lot on at home. My hands were free and to do other things while she just hung out. It was great. One thing that I did notice in the beginning was that my body seemed to overcompensate on the side she was not sitting on so it did put a bit of a strain on my body. But once I was aware of what I was doing I was able to fix it and it felt great!
Here is the AP Barely Square that I have and what Hotslings has to say about it-
Say bye bye to complicated sizing charts and hello to the infinitely adjustable Hotslings AP! Two strategically placed tri-glides allow the AP to fit comfortably on multiple users while also easily accommodating postpartum body changes.
Hotslings provide you with great instructions on different ways to carry your baby and the age appropriate positions, great for newbies like me. There are lots of great patterns to chose from and each comes with a matching diaper pouch for your on the go diaper needs! Cute! If you are looking for a Sling that is stylish and functional I suggest you check out Hotslings.
